                                          Usually one of my favorite NOLA restaurants, food preparation was not up to their usual standard and there were several flies buzzing at the interior windows which is a bad look for any place but even more noticeable in a restaurant with this character - at least the server was prompt and professional

She was enthusiastic, professional, attentive and overall did an outstanding job in taking care of us. I hope she gets recognized for a consistent job well done.

                                          Would have rated service higher, but there was a long wait to receive dessert order.

                                          Hubby had the most delicious pork chop and I had BBQ shrimp. The shrimp were good but I really had to work for it and it was very messy. We will go back next time we are in New Orleans and I may get the pork chop too!

                                          Tables are jammed together. Servers struggle to take orders and get food and beverages to the table…. no service beyond the basics. Our wines arrived after the appetizer course after we had to ask status. Staff works hard but they can’t keep up. Food was fine.

                                          Ken and Destiny was amazing. The truffle fries and pork chop was soooo delicious. The shrimp, carrots and rice needed seasoning but overall great service and food. I was able to meet the owner and she is the sweetest lady. Such a hard worker.

                                          The duck eggrolls were a good choice- very tasty! My grilled red fish was overdone and dry, but the soft-shell crab did not disappoint. Excellent! The service was a bit rushed but very friendly.

                                          The jambalaya pasta was mediocre at best. Crawfish pasta was pretty good. The best thing we ordered was the pecan pie…one of the best I have ever had. I would go back just for the pie

                                          I’m visiting from Washington, DC and I was told by a family member to stop by. Hands down, the best food experience thus far. The duck wontons were flavorful and delicious, so were the shrimp and grits along with the jumbo crab cake. I plan to visit again before I depart.

                                          My wife and I were in New Orleans for the weekend to celebrate our 15th anniversary. I noted this when making our reservations. We were wished a happy anniversary upon arrival at check in as well as by our server. Additionally, we were delivered a complimentary bread pudding to celebrate. The BBQ shrimp was just as good as I remembered. As for extra bread to finish off the juice. Our server, Avis, was warm and very attentive. Mr. B’s remains one of our favorites!

                                          We love Mr. B’s. We’ve eaten here multiple times and love it each time. Their dishes are wonderful. The bbq shrimp is delicious the fry appetizer is yummy and their salad is a perfect light side! I’ve never had a bad dish here! We’ve celebrated birthdays and anniversaries here. Never disappoints. If it is crowded expected slower service but that’s anywhere, be patient.

                                          Been visiting this place for years. Was recommended for the Bread pudding which this time was just not very good. But everything else hit the mark.

                                          Reservations were spot on and definitely needed. Great evening starting with Brian at the bar, an old fashion to remember (the drink not Brian although Brian was an excellent bar tender). Moved to dining room, service was awesome. I had the fried oyster appetizer, shrimp and grits, and topped it off with pecan pie and coffee. Excellent evening. They offered a free bread pudding (it was my birthday) but it’s really hard to pass on the pecan pie with sea salt caramel and a scoop of ice cream. Still one of my favorite spots when I’m in town.

                                          Barbecue shrimp… The shrimp was overcooked and the wait team led by Jeramy was not in sync at all and I was given the wrong entrée and my husband had to ask three times to get iced tea. We have dined here many times in the past and We weren’t told about any specials and we had to ask

This time we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and I was able to secure our favorite table in the dining room. The food was fantastic as usual, and our servers (William & Clarence) were a top-notch team working together to take good care of their customers.
